This would be diluting the "brand" recognition and usefulness of fdo. Actually 
I expect that fdo does not randomly host any project like sourceforge. If fdo 
becomes another sf it would be immediately obsolete.

So imho it is mandatory that for projects being hosted on fdo there is a 
rather larger consensus that they have the support from the majority of 
projects involved in fdo matters (e.g. KDE, GNOME, E, bb...)

As can be seen from the thread there is a consensus that a naming 
specification is most useful but the Tango artwork is very controversial and 
actually sofar noone except the original Ximian guys embraced it.
